Lack of sleep, poor diet and low water intake will certainly make the condition worse. However, there are other contributory factors that may also cause eye bags and dark circles. If there is a lack of oxygen getting to the skin tissue then this may lead to discolouration around the eyes. Puffiness around the eye area can also be caused by fluid retention often as the result of dehydration.
Technologies like CACI Hydratone will hydrate and oxygenate the tissue helping to alleviate these conditions. The cooling action of the Hydratone mask will also help to constrict the capillaries around the eye area resulting in the reduction of the appearance of dark circles.
Dark circles are likely to become more noticeable and permanent with age. This is because as people get older, skin loses collagen and becomes thinner and more translucent. Bad circulation and a sluggish metabolism will cause dark circles and little pockets of fat to form. Stimulatory treatments using microcurrent will help to stimulate blood flow and assist in breaking down fatty deposits.
Sometimes, a chronic sinus condition or a nasal allergy can also result in under-eye puffiness. The stimulatory action of microcurrent can assist in unblocking and breaking down sinus congestion.
